College flewe Vol. 8 No. 7 WELLESLEY, MASS., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1908 Price 5 Cents Student Government Meeting A Studert Government Meeting was called Friday, at 4.15 in College Hall Chap- el. After the reading of the secretary's report, Miss Smith gave the report of the Fire Brigade, saying that there had been marked improvement in the second fire- drill in College Hall. The report of the trustees was read in regard to the Stu- dents' Building, and much applause greeted the announcement that the request had been granted, and that permission had been given tj start a fund for the building. Miss H aford urged the co-operation of the who college. She said that the alum- nae wer 'iack of us to help, and that by our wor, we could show the trustees that we' are \. Uy in earnest. Miss Raymond spoke . ol the work of the International Institute League last year and expressed a be- lief that the work this year would un- doubtedly be greater and that Senorita Marcial, whose presence was such an in- spiration last year, ought to have the same influence this year. Miss Ruth Fletcher was elected chairman of the College League Committee for this year. Miss Hanford made several announcements: — that the Executive Board had de- cided that Roman Catholics would be per- mitted to attend church services in Na- tick and Xewton Low-er Falls; also that notice would be posted later in regard to members of non-evangelical churches. Miss Hanford spoke of the care that should be taken of the behavior of girls on the train to and from Boston. She then read the acknowledgement sent by Pres. Taft of our telegram, sent upon his election. The announcement was made that Miss Belle Mapes had been appointed head of singing for this year. A letter was read from Miss Hazard expressing her hope to be back with us in the spring. Miss Zabriskie spoke for the interest of cheering, and asked the girls to wait until after the musical cheer before leaving cen- ter. This, she said, seemed to her merely a matter of courtesy to the college. Also, she urged the girls to realize that a spirit of reverence was due in chapel — especially emphasizing the need of this spirit at ves- pers. Miss Randall reported from the re- cent meeting at Mt. Holyoke, dwelling particularly upon the cordiality of the girls there. Miss Hanford gave the report of the business side of the convention. The comparison, she said, of the work of the different colleges was very interesting and showed that Wellcsley stood very near ad. The thing in which we and othei colleges fail is that we are not yet as strong as we should be in our individual feeling of responsibility, and the funda- mental question in solving this is the mat- ter of quiet. In solving that, we solve ev- erything. Miss Hanford expressed a wish that by next year this problem will have been solved. The meeting was thrown open for a ew moments to a discus sion of this matter of quiet. Perhaps, the most interesting suggestion made was that of Miss Shepard, who was in favor of do- ing away with the proctoring system. This suggestion was received very favorably and Miss Hanford asked each girl to think of the matter seriously. The meeting closed with the announcement that the transept doors would be closed hereafter, in chapel, at the close of the first hymn, at vespers as well as at morning chapel. "When wilt Thou save the people? O God of mercy, when ? Not Kings and Lords, but nations! Not thrones and crowns, but men ! Flowers of Thy heart, O God, are they: Let them not pass, like weeds, away — Their heritage a sunless way God save the people ! "Shall crime bring crime for ever, Strength aiding still the strong? Is it Thy will, O Father, That man shall toil for wrong? 'No,' say Th mountains; 'No,' Thy skies; Man's sun shall highly rise, And S' .id instead of sighs. God eople ! "When wilt 1 nou save the people? O God of mercy, when? The people, Lord, the people, Not thrones and crowns, but men ! God save the people; Thine they are, Thy children, as Thine angels fair; From vice, oppression, and despair, God save the people !" College Settlements Meeting A meeting of the College Settlements Chapter was held in College Hall Chapel, Monday evening, November 16. Four amendments and three new sections to the constitution were adopted. Miss Ingalls gave a report of the meeting of the Col- lege Settlements Association, in Philadel- phia, two weeks previous. She then spoke of the field and scope of the College Set- tlements Association in America. The meeting adjourned to the Faculty Parlor where Miss Scudder spoke informally to the girls. Miss Scudder gave an interesting ac- count of her work among the Italians in the North End of Boston, and urged the girls to attend the Italian exhibition to be- erin December 2. in the new Franklin Building. The arts and crafts exhibits there are made entirely by the Italians. Miss Scudder spoke of the need for help which the College Settlements Association feels — the colleges stand behind it, both with their money and with their interest. She wanted the girls to feel that they were a part of a great movement, and gave a great many instances of the help they had given and can yet give. Miss Scudder sug- gested that the following hymn be adopted by the Wellesley Chapter: Gorham D. Abbot Memorial On November 11, 1908, at a meeting of the Abbot Collegiate Association, a gift of $1,000 was presented by the Association to Wellesley College. The income of this fund is to be used in the purchase of books on education for our library, the fund being in memory of Dr. Gorham D. Abbot. Dr. Abbot was at one time the principal of Spingler Institute, a famous school for young women fifty years ago in New York City. He was associated with Wellesley in that he knew the founder, and discussed with him those matters of education which interested them both so deeply. The last years of Dr. Abbot's life were passed in South Natick. The pur- pose of the Association which bears his name is to keep in touch with the ad- vanced educational ideas of the time and to be "a helper of colleges." It has but lately founded a fellowship at Vassar in memory of Dr. and Mrs. Abbot. Many members of the college will be interested to know that the leader of the movement was Mrs. Melville Emory Mead, principal of the Hillside School, Norwalk, Conn. The fund may thus be regarded as a me- morial of Mrs. Mead also. The ceremony of presentation was held in the Brick Church in New York City. Dr. Lyman Abbott made the speech of presentation ; and Mrs. Louise McCoy North, 1879, one of the trustees of the col- lege, received the gift in the absence of President Hazard.

EDITORIAL Is it really true that we have ceased to read for pleasure or recreation? And if we have, is it sufficient excuse that the reading involved in our various courses demands all our spare time? Here in college, the matter is not perhaps, of so great importance. We know that nearly every girl will have the same answer to our question concerning a recent work — ".No indeed, 1 haven t read it or even seen it. l have to spend ail ray time studying." Do you not feel a little humiliated when you are away from college and some one asks "Have you read this?" or - 'Do you know that author?" and you are obliged to admit to your absolute ignorance? Sure- ly there are books coming out all the time, both fiction and those that deal with the more serious matters, which deserve our attention. We may not have time to read many, but at least we might know them by name with a view to making a closer acquaintance with them later. And by these books, I do not mean "the popular novel." It is this lack of interest in literary DR. CHAS. E. TAYLOR Dentist Taylor Block - "Wellesley, Mass.

We .'eel guiltilj conscious, whenever we are forced to admit that we have never heard of a certain prominent writer or are not familiar with some apparently well-known book, that a score is going down against us as college girls. We do not wish peo- ple to believe our development lies along only a few lines ; and this desire to hide our ignorance leads us into almost as much troub- le as the ignorance itself. We recollect an obscure Frenchman who did something in the Renaissance, with a vague look, and' then with a flashing smile of remembrance — as if we had not heard the question perfectly — and then we are safe again. Indeed, after a time there comes to be a certain fascination in covering up huge fields of ignorance with only the thinnest veil of tact — today we call it "bluff." We say that it requires cleverness and adaptability and many other things nec- essary to the furtherance of mere casual acquaintance and where is the harm, as long as we do not follow this course in our academic work? But some day we are discovered. We trip over the smallest obstacle of knowledge and our carefully reared hofise of card-wisdom lies empty and hollow, a mere shell, at our feet.

College Notes Miss Hazard will spend the winter in California. It is hoped that her health will be so much improved that she will be able to return to Wellesley by the spring term. At the meeting of the Social Study Circle, held Tuesday evening, November 17, Miss Jean Hamilton of Oswego, New York, spoke. Miss Hamilton is the general secretary of working girls' clubs, and talked most interestingly of her work and its results. Such clubs are purely social, she said, but they do much good, and she urged a greater interest from college girls in founding working girls' clubs over the country. The "housewarming" to celebrate the refurnishing and decorating of the Senior Parlor was held on Monday, Novem- ber 16. Forty members of the Freshman class were entertained at an afternoon tea by the officers of the Christian Association on Thursday, November 19. This is the first of a series of teas for Freshmen and new students to be held during the term. The Magazine Club met for the first time this year on Saturday evening, November 21, at the Agora House. Reports were made on the college papers of Yale and Williams, compar- ing their material and treatment with that of the Wellesley Magazine. A discussion of ways of improving our material by means of gaining greater variety in character, and of making the Magazine more truly characteristic of Wellesley, followed. Brigadier-General Philip Reade, U. S. A., retired, was a guest of Mrs. Brown at Cazenove last Friday. In the evening he spoke informally to the girls, giving a very delightful ac- count of the Philippines and his life there. About thirtjy-five former students of Colorado College are now studying in this part of the country. Several of them from Wellesley had a reunion in Boston Friday evening. Dr. Slo- cum, president of Colorado College, who preached at Wellesley on Sunday, was the guest of honor. Professor Kuhnemann of Harvard, will give a talk on Schiller next Monday, reading from "Maria Stuart." Professor Kuhnemann is considered one of the authorities on Schiller and the best reader in Germany. The following heads of sports have been elected : of Hock- ey, Elizabeth Robinson ; of Tennis, Helen MacDonald ; of Golf, Kate Cushman ; of Running, Edith Mills ; of Archery, Isadore Douglas. At a meeting of the Cross Country Walking Club held last week the following officers were elected: Miss H. Larri- more, president; Miss Mills and Miss Edsall, executive com- mittee. It is hoped that the club will have a flourishing year. The walks come on Monday mornings, and there are no restric- tions to memberships, no dues, and no regulations.

KANRICH 164A Tremont St., BOSTON * Miss Rawn's Work in Piedmont College It is thought that the following extracts from a letter from Isabel Rawn, 100S, will be interesting to all Wellesley girls. We wish that space permitted the printing of the whole letter. Miss Rawn wrote in October, telling of her work and of the great need for help and sympathy, which we can give. The Missionary Committee was glad that an alumna looked to us so confidently for co-operation, and sent twenty-five dollars. Miss Rawn then writes : "Piedmont College, Demorest, Ga. November 2. 1908. Dear Miss Whiteside, Your letter of October 21st came to me a week ago : since when I have been eager, — more than eager — to tell you, as representing the Christian Association, what a fine thing it is to feel Wellesley behind me in the work here. ******** Since I wrote to you, I have organized a squad to play basketball, among the girls. It is fine for them because no one ever taught them how to use and enjoy their bodies, and they need to be put in better physical trim. The narrow religious conceptions of these people, dear as they are, emphasize the importance of proprieties which seem to us petty, but which we are bound to respect. We can't ask them to learn grace through dancing, therefore, but basketball will give them some idea of form, and it is even healthier than dancing. All of which reminds me: if the barrel hasn't started yet, or even if it has. some of the girls might like to send some old gym suits and sweaters and gymnasium shoes. The children are too poor, you iid a penny needlessly, and, although those who take indoor physical culture lessons are supplied with bloomers, the majority of the girls are forced to play awk- \\ ardly in some old skirt. Did I tell you about Jessie Hamilton and Eliza dale? They do the weaving and spinning. I wish you might see them, like two hand maids of Queen Ma- thilde with her Bayeux tapestry — before she began to do the embroidery of it, — with the great wooden loom, and the spin- ning wheels, the shafts of light in the room showing the air filled with bits of wool, and all the wonderful blue bed-spreads being woven to the tune of rhythmic thuds and the whirring of wheels. The portieres and spreads that they weave are of in- dicate pattern, going by such names as 'General Lee's Sur- render," the "'Double Bow Knot." These two children, the only ones in the school who are at all proficient in the quaint eld industry, spin all the wool that is used, card it, wash it, dye it, weave it. Eliza worked her passage through school, and until she grew less strong, that of her two small sisters. It was a brave thing for her to do because these mountaineers look down on manual work of any kind that brings pay, as only fit for the negroes. It is the prejudice which the school finds most difficult to overcome. And Jessie, — COTRELL & LEONARD ALBANY, N Y. Makers of the Caps, Gowns and Hoods to Wellesley, Radcliffe.

H 914 Walnut St. PHILADELPHIA, PA. Jessie was taken from an orphan home, though she has a worth- mother, living somewhere, — <he stays here at the school all summer, working to get money to stay through the winter, and I started to tell you about her because she wants to earn a gym suit by keeping the whitewash lines clearly marked out on the basketball held. That means her whole morning every Saturday in this country, where the heavy rains come down and paste a thick red shine over everything. Do send Jessie a gymnasium suit, and ask the girls to search through their belongings for pretty boxes, old finery, etc.. that will do for Christmas gifts. — and too, I wish you could think of a way to give Jessie a home in the north, at some place where she could learn to be self-supporting — perhaps learn millinery, as not good at books. She is eighteen, plucky, very charming and lovable, the sort of girl you would like to help. If she were given advantages in a northern home, she would make a delightful end to somebody's servant problem. As it is. she is homeless, and without any prospects for the time when she leaves here. Mr. Campbell, (once president of the college, now investi- gating social and educational conditions among the mountaineers on the Sage Foundation), suggested that Wellesley found a scholarship for a girl here. Fifty dollars would suffice to send a girl through the school year, as she could meet the balance of her expenses by doing domestic work. ******** I told you about the little Sweet girls in my last letter. Some of your money has brought shoes, stockings and overshoes already for their poor bare feet. A primary teacher was buying them out of her own salary of about $12 a month. I told her about your gift, and that you would like the com- fortable feeling that you were putting warm stockings on the cold youngsters, so I am to pay her back when the money comes. We did a wild fandango of joy together, and in fact, I have made this whole district so enthusiastic for Wellesley that with propriety, I think I might start them off some day on the Wellesley cheer, and expect them to sound a hearty chorus. I can't stop, but I must, and again I am, Loyally yours, dear Christian Association, Isabel Rawn. Mi-;* Rawn also pleads for a missionary barrel, which is being prepared and will be sent immediately after Thanksgiving. Will you not contribute to it? They need clothing, thick and thin, (most especially shoes, stockings, overshoes), umbrellas, tablecloths and napkins for the dormitories, and always money.

Sixteen Mission Study classes have been started with an en- rollment of about one hundred. During the month of October, normal classes were conducted by members of the faculty and competent girls. This year the following courses are being offered : India, China, Home Missions, Lives of Famous Missionaries, The Re- ligions of the Mission Fields, Bible and Missions, and the Apol- ogetic of Missions. The Mission Study Committee extends to all those who have not joined classes, a most cordial invitation to do so now. The leaders will be most happy to welcome new members to their classes, and additional classes in India and The Religions of the Mission Fields may be started. To any who, for good reasons, feel that they cannot become regular members of a class, and yet are eager to enjoy the privileges and inspiration of the study of missions, the committee will be glad to give permission to attend classes as listeners. Will any who desire to join classes as regular members or as listeners kindly leave their names in the Christian Association Office? During the second semester, a course of six lectures on minions is to be given for the Freshmen, as this year it has been thought advisable that the Mission Study courses should not be open to Freshmen. The Missionary Library on the third floor of College Hall is open to all. On the Missionary Bulletin Board, near the book-case, lists of reference books for the different courses are posted. Attention is called to the letters from our college mis- sionary, Dr. Ruth Hume, which are posted on this bulletin board. It is hoped that the girls will read the letters and learn more directly of the great work Wellesley is doing through Dr. Hume, for the women and children of India. Katharine Stanley Hall Chairman Mission Studv Committee. phrase, "the privilege of college life." The spiritual side of our life here makes a special demand through the complexity bi interests and duties. By our chapel services, the Thursday evening meetings, and the Bible and Mission Study classes, this demand is met. Miss Han ford next spoke of the social life at college. For the opportunity of making friends and doing our utmost for them, and for our dependence on each other, we should be deeply grateful. Then, too, all our life here is made easier by the beauty of the world about us, the chance of being near to God in the physical world. Miss Hanford said that what we have really come to college for is the broad- ening of our life intellectually. The wide range of ideas, the glimpses of new paths to follow for ourselves — these are all - through the privileges of college life. At the vesper service, Sunday, November 29. Mr. Robert Speer will speak on the general purpose and call of missions. Perhaps all the girls do not know that the Christian Asso- ciation subscribers for the two magazines, "The Intercollegian," and "The Association Monthly.'' These contain most inter- esting accounts of the different branches of association work being done in other colleges, and it is hoped that the members of our association will take the time to read them. They trill alwavs be found on the table in the association office. Christian Association A Thanksgiving Meeting of the Christian Association was held Thursday, November 19, in College Hall Chapel. Miss Ruth Hanford spoke of the real meaning of the much-used Notice— Legendas ! ! ! !

Free Press The disciples of the Planchette Board and the students of esoteric wisdom are increasing, — hence a timely word of warn- ing. Those who yearn to lift the mystic veil of Isis pay a heavy penalty". Telementation, concentration, will-projection, arcana, etheric vibrations are vampires in sapping strength. An all absorbing interest in thought-forms and their ma- terialization has a hypnotic influence which leaves a lasting effect net only- on a medium's every day work, but on her mental and physical forces as well Psychic phenomena safo within the backs of a conservative psychology are harmless. Unloosened they are hosts to be reckoned with. For the same healthy student occult realms are best unexplored. College is a place for thinking living thoughts, for sleeping wholesome •l work. Acrobatic knowledge ha? no place in such a regime. Fascinating it may be to invoke spirits out of space, to conjure up affinities, to reveal fantastic futures — yet to those who cannot indulge in the luxury of hysteria and neuro- tics — Beware !
